The 5 Greatest Live-Music Spots in Brooklyn

Key to the City BY tess falotico 04/13/2017

To say Jill Martinelli and Sabine Le Guyader are embedded deep into the Brooklyn music scene would be an understatement (or a false note, perhaps?). Most of their friends and family are musicians, including Jill’s husband, who makes up one half of the extremely rad band Chairlift. So, as  you can imagine, the pair have been inside pretty much every live-music spot in the city, and these are the five, per Jill, they especially like the sound of.

 

NATIONAL SAWDUST

“They have all sorts of shows: Bands play there, they show performance art, big bands will do acoustic sets, and they host dance parties. It’s a lot of alternative entertainment in a really cool, brand-new space.”

 

GOOD ROOM

“There’s a disco ball, and it’s just a good room to party in. They have live music, and it’s also a dance club at night. It gets really wild. Björk showed up one night and took over my friend’s DJ spot.”

BABY’S ALL RIGHT

“They always have good bands, and it’s fun every time. You can go into a separate, quieter room to have a drink and then go watch the band.”

 

MUSIC HALL OF WILLIAMSBURG

“I usually like small venues, but if you have to go to a bigger venue to see a big artist, this one’s the best. The environment is nice enough, and the acoustics are awesome. Bands always sound good here.”

 

SAINT VITUS

“A lot of big musicians will do a show in Manhattan and then have a small, secret show in Brooklyn at this place, Good Room, or Baby’s All Right.”
